Creating Access Database

I have a folder containing songs (all legally owned!!) The file names are the song title or first line.
Can I create an Access database and import the file names, one per record to save me having to type them in?

At the dos prompt make your directory the current directory, then enter dir>>files.txt
This creates files.txt in the same directory. Open in excel and edit the rows. Save as excel file then import into your Access database.

Thanks for the info and for getting back so quickly.
Actually, I think I may just use the Excell spreadsheet - it will be just as good as Access

How do I get to the Dps prompt & how do I make L:\christian music to be my current directory.

I know it will be easy but it is very difficult when you don't know how!!!

All programs
Command Prompt

In the command prompt where the flashing minus sign is type cd L:\christian music and then press enter.
you may have to enclose the christian music part in "".
